Still Life assignment for Art156, Studio Lighting.
Taken with the main light being a softbox to the right and above the piece, and a spotlight on the background at significantly lower power.
Amazing video of a head on crash test using a 1959 and 2009 Chevrolet.
A Scottsdale, Az woman repelled 2 would be home invaders by shooting at them. From the Az Republic:
The 47-year-old woman heard the doorbell ringing continuously Tuesday morning while she was sleeping at her home on the 10000 block of North 74th Place. She looked through a peephole and did not recognize the person. She then went to her room to get her cell phone and handgun, according to a press release.
When she returned, the first person, whose face was hidden by a hooded sweatshirt, backed away as another person kicked the door, knocking a hole through it. The woman was knocked down and received some facial injuries, police said.
The woman then placed her gun through the hole and fired two rounds. They fled in a dark Nissan Maxima, police said, and that’s when the woman called the police.
Way to go! I’ll bet those felons think twice before attacking someone else. Too bad they ran off and were not carried off.
